  • We went with four friends on a motorcycle to paramillos mines. We contacted us previously so we wait with a roast. When we got the roast was ready and exquisite. We will return again for the tour by the mines.

  • Unforgettable... 365 curves you do ascending with snow, make this excursion to find everything. Surprise, surprise and so many qualifiers visit mine is all an experience.

  • If you like adventure tourism is an excellent choice in Mendoza. Besides rappelling in the mines, there are Tyrolean, a vantage point of Mount Aconcagua and very good food. The guides are very cool!

  • Excellent this place. We made the excursion to the mines with rappel and the truth that is not to be missed. In addition to a very good price we ate an excellent very full roast, served as a few Kings (includes everything and it can be repeated: Chori, sausage, roast, empty, salad, grilled potato, homemade bread, soft drinks). There had missed a glass of red wine only.

Where to stay in Mendoza

As the center of Argentina's wine industry, Mendoza offers plenty of conventional hostel and hotel options, as well as a good selection of short-term apartments for rent. Visitors taking language courses or spending several weeks on the wine route usually snatch these early in the tourist season (which lasts from mid-December to late-February), so it's a good idea to do some research and contact the owners before you arrive. Keep in mind that some of the town's hostels only offer beds to guests signed up for their wine tours.
